  • When you close your eyes and go to sleep
    And it's down to the sound of a heartbeat
    I can hear the things that you're dreaming about
    When you open up your heart
    And the truth comes out

    You tell me that you want me
    You tell me that you need me
    You tell me that you love me
    And I know that I'm right
    'Cause I hear it in the night

    I hear the secrets that you keep
    When you're talking in your sleep

    When I hold you in my arms at night
    Don't you know you're sleeping in the spotlight
    And all your dreams that you keep inside
    You're telling me the secrets
    That you just can't hide

    When you close your eyes and you fall asleep
    Everything about you is a mystery Writer/s: GEORGE CANLER, JAMES MARINOS, MICHAEL SKILL, PETER SOLLEY, WALTER PALAMARCHUK

  • Esskayess from Dallas, TxI always paired this song with Night Ranger's 'When You Close Your Eyes (Do You Dream About Me).' Fun to precede this song with that one.
